SEBRING, Ohio (WKBN) – Two people were arrested on child endangering charges Friday after police were called to a home for an unruly child, according to the Sebring Police Department.
Police went to the 400 block of W. Ohio Ave. on Wednesday and discovered a child was allegedly being abused, according to a news release from the police department.
Police contacted Child Protective Services, and the children in the house were temporarily removed.
According to the criminal complaint, the suspects allegedly locked the child in her room using an outside lock. The suspects refused to let her out and even nailed the windows shut from the outside, according to the complaint.

They are scheduled to be in court Thursday.
